the candidates that could possibly challenge the democratic majority. host: all right. virginia. joe, you say, no. why? caller: i am not over all happy with what is going on. the reason why i say that is we -- even with the tea party candidates, the only thing we would do is slow down the change. there has not really been any change. understand,don't that i find quite pertinent, with as much discontent as there is from voters -- voting with former democratic candidates as well as republican candidates, while a third party hasn't developed as in with what ross perot? i'm afraid the tea party candidate would do nothing more than to split the votes, we're in a general election the democrats would come back on top. host: on our 20 page -- twitter page -- that comes from helen. san diego. joanne. you say, yes, you are happy with the tea party-backed candidate. caller: i am thrilled. we have a great slate in california with carly fiorina alabama and meg whitman -- host: what she tea party? caller: i have to confess i have not gone out to one of the events, but i am thrilled that people in our country a
and everything will trickle down. >> the candidates running in the virginia race are tom periello freshman democrat, elected in a wave of victories during obama's victory in 2008, and against him is challenger robert -- republican state senator from chatham, the seventh part of the district, and jeff parker, tea party member and independent businessman from the danville area. this race is getting a lot of national attention because republicans see periello as one of the most vulnerable democrats in congress, he represents a somewhat conservative district and he voted in favor of obama's major initiatives -- health care, capt. trade, stimulus, so on. and two years ago he was elected by the smallest margin of any congressional race in the country. they think -- the republicans are seeing this as a pickup but democrats, however, say tom perriello is a fighter, very tough campaigner and because he supported the same initiatives that he is getting support of national democrats just like national republicans are trying to taken down. in 2008, perriello, a young lawyer from charlottesville, he ch

one -- virginia and maryland. then you have democrats that face tougher calls. chett edwards faces a tough race. these are members represent conservative districts. this may not be the year for them to save their seats. host: what will be the game plan for the white house to save the majority in the house? guest: to be very cold-blooded in their a look and where they need to invest in these races. decide where their money can make a difference. host: will the president be campaigning for individual candidates? will he stay clear and fund- raiser for them instead? what will he do? guest: i think you'll see president obama heading up the new york checkbox pretty soon. he will head up the los angeles checkbox. -- checkbooks. many of the conservative democrats -- and democrats in conservative districts, do not want to have the present campaign for them. the individualize their races. the distance themselves from the national party. host: the first lady is going to spend some of her political capital and carefully stepped into the campaign season. where do you expect to see her? guest:
and like the gentleman in west virginia. that would be negative. the gentleman in kentucky that is not here visiting, the democrats do not have to pray that it will be 1994 and more because it will be more of the depression we were headed for. was it enough? host: can i ask you, how is the senate race looking in pennsylvania? at the plant to vote? caller: i think the republicans are in for a big surprise. the callers wanted to know why your show lanes towards the democrats. it does not. i think it is buried there. you do not have republicans calling in. i think there are some republicans out there like myself. we have seen what they had done to this country. eight years was enough. host: the financial times says the attention is turning to al mr. obama will turn towards divided government. the parallel is when it did gingrich seized control. his party had been in the minority for the previous four years and over reached. he deprived the government of day today funding. the public blamed the republicans for the shutdown. the president regained the initiative and was reelected one year later.

in illinois, west virginia and delaware will take office more or less immediately after votes are canvased and certified and they'll be serving in the lame-duck session. i believe that voters in those states will render a very clear judgment on this lame duck agenda by sending additional reinforcements for our side of the aisle. the campaign strategy of our friends on the other side of the aisle is crystal clear. they are not running on their legislative accomplishments because it's largely unpopular. and they are worried that voters will hold them accountable for the failure of those policies to meet their own stated goals. so they're running campaigns against the american people, some of whom are participating in the political process for the first time. and i'm talking about the tea party movement. calling some of these participants in the process guaranteed by the first amendment of the constitution to redress their government on their grievances and they're deemonizing members of the tea party -- demonizing members of the tea party movement. and president obama has engaged in class wa

of virginia. and i am happy to say that because i live in virginia and i'm very proud of that past. but i am asking for is a double request. to reassert our commitment to the first amendment's. throughout history it has shown that it is a very valuable parts of what the united states is about. it is one of the major attractions of the u.s. for immigrants to leave their country. they left their countries but leave them because they truly believe that in this country, they can have that free and dignified being that they have missed elsewhere. the supreme court threw out the years has again collaborated and amplified the basic principles of the first amendment. for example, chief justice rehnquist emphasize that political divisiveness alone cannot serve to invalidate otherwise permissible conduct. whatever we might feel about the person sitting next to us, they have rights, even if we politically degree -- disagree, that is the reason to behave in a way that infringes on those rights. furthermore, the first amendment states -- it does not state but implies -- that the powers of the government
could though? host: ok. we'll go to john in west virginia. your take on this. good morning. caller: hi. i would just like to comment on the fact that -- wait one second. sorry. i'd just like to talk about how obama -- host: we'll go to betty next in north carolina. caller: good morning. i just want to say that 9/11 is not the ghost of bin laden day. it's a day where americans want to express their outrage. and we're a free society. we have a right to do that, and we should. when almost 3,000 americans who are not at war are killed, murdered, and the roots go very deep in all this. you know. the muslims are not all out to kill us and we don't live in a fear. we know that their religion has been kidnapped and used by terrorists to fulfill their aims. but 9/11 fits right up there with pearl harbor day and d day. and i think we've become crass and say we shouldn't talk about it any more. we've talked about it enough. i think that would be wrong. thank you. host: we'll come back with a few more minutes of your phone calls and then follow that up with our roundtable. our guest on "newsmakers

that is from tuesday. virginia. brian, republican. go ahead. caller: first-time caller. i would like to comment a little bit about congress. i have listened to a couple of the comments made this morning. the problem we have right now is that republicans and democrats cannot get together on any issue that we have relating to this country. it is a shame that they can't do that. and i think that this health care reform that they have passed, that the democrats have passed, has really affected our country and has affected me also as a citizen. it because i am a police officer. -- because i am a police officer, and just this year alone might premiums, ever since they passed the health care plan, my premiums have gone up twice. actually talking about going up again in -- where it. costs -- going up begin in january. this is the biggest reason premiums i have never had and i have been a lot enforcement 22 years. it's, you work for the city? is it -- host: do you work for the city? is it the city paying less or the premiums going up to the cause has increased to both? caller: well, the blue cross and b
of virginia. good morning governor. >> maggie, nice to be with you. >> the timing of this suspected rahm emanuel announcement is less than ideal. here we are five weeks to election day. just a few weeks ago we heard the president say he expected emanuel to stick it out until after the election. what message do you think this is sending to the electorate if yet another key member bails now? >> maggie, i think folks will understand. i'm going to let rahm emanuel make the decision and make the announcement when he wants to. but if he goes ahead and makes the decision to run for the mayorship of chicago, i think people will understand, it's a very important position and it's one that he's certainly thought about for a long time. and given the timing of that spot being up candidates who want to run for mayor are going to have to declare fairly soon. so i don't expect that that's going to have any impact on the november elections. >> the president's going to be back at the university of wisconsin tonight, hoping to rally the voters. you yourself have admitted this is a
